Cat-binet Curiosa

My mother is a strange once sentimental and as cold blooded as a Mafia hit man.
Our first cat, Minou, was a beautiful long haired yellow male, with a hateful demeanor and a tendency to pee on everything.
Of course her solution was to lock him in basket in the bathroom every night.

She kept him for years, until one day he peed on the dining room floor.
 That's when he "disappeared."

I was inconsolable, heartbroken.

Soon afterward my mother, however, started up a collection of cat figurines
Most of which she put a case hanging right about Minou's last pissing spot.
(Edgar Allan Poe, eat your heart out)

Anyway, here are some of the freakier denizens of her curio cabinet:

"The Gift" (from hell?) a butterfly/ cat genetic experiment gone wrong

A tiny sleeping dead cat, made of mouse? fur.

An articulated Puss in Boots

a trio of ghouls from your worst nightmares

Just a few of the uses I've seen around town for wayward Mardi Gras beads

Decorating the palm trees

Filling in potholes

true colors

I'm thinking of painting my room.
Not sure which color yet.
Moral Ambiguity Gray or Anal Bleach perhaps?

If You Were Born Today

Today I stumbled upon
 Time Magazine's "Find Out What Your Name Would Be If You Were Born Today"
It takes the relative popularity of your name in the year you were born and matches it with a name of the same popularity for various decades.

To my horror, apparently my name today would be the abomination:
 Kayden? WTF

This sounds like something one of the Kardashians is probably going to name her 3rd grandchild.

Anywho, here's a list of the other decades, none of which are terribly inspiring, but all
better than Kayden:
2000s =Mario
1990s =Hector
1970s= Greg
 ... Gwynne played the role of Herman Munster on the TV comedy The Munsters

 Clifton Webb

Thankfully, it seems my name in the1890s would be
the much sexier "Sylvester"
At last a name I can get behind.
